It Cosmetics Bye Bye Foundation Full Coverage Moisturizer: Worth the Price?


Hi there, my lovelies! I hope you are having a wonderful Tuesday. Today I want to talk about the much hyped about It Cosmetic’s Bye Bye Foundation Full Coverage Moisturizer. I was able to try it out for the first time this morning and I will give my first-hand experience of what I thought about the moisturizer.

Description: I first found out about the product from those infomercials. Infomercials usually don’t persuade me to buy something but I went online right away because I am a fan of It Cosmetics and love their products. This moisturizer is supposed to be the first-ever full-coverage moisturizer from It Cosmetics that will let you say bye to your foundation. This moisturizer was clinical shown to improve the look of your skin, even after you take it off. Its anti-aging ingredients will help treat and correct the look of aging skin and transform your skin into a more youthful looking skin. Most of all, its mineral-based SPF 50+ broad-spectrum physical sunscreen will protect and help prevent free-radical damage for a healthier, younger-looking skin. It comes in four different shades: light, medium, tan, and rich.

Verdict: As you can see from the picture, I have raccoon eyes with dark circle and hyperpigmentation along with dark spots. I was surprised how light the moisturizer is. I actually received mine (Described as 100% Authentic) from Ebay for only $39.99. You can get yours from It Cosmetics for $65. This moisturizer does a better job than a lot of the foundations in making my face look flawless. It just took me less than a minute to get the look. However, I still had some dark some though significantly lightened. I will actually give this moisturizer 4 stars just because it does not cover everything, but it does do a very good job. Additionally, it doesn’t last long time. You will have to reapply it to continue the look. You often have to do it with foundation too. Will it replace foundation for everyday use? Definitely. My beautiful readers, I have just found my favorite moisturizer that may just have replaced foundation for me for the most part. I will still use foundation but only in special occasions. I would like to point out that this product comes with a pump. I personally prefer this kind of lovely packaging because you’re able to better control the amount of product that comes out.

Is Your Skin Ready For Winter?


winter_face

The past couple of days have been very cold reminding us winter is upon us. While we are getting to the cold, is our skin ready for the bitter cold of the winter season. If the winter is anything like last year, then we are in for a brutal cold season. In the cold winter season, our skin becomes dry, dull, flaky, and sometimes even more reactive. Who wants to look like this especially during the holiday season?

I for one fall, am in huge predicament each winter. My skin is so sensitive to the cold that my face becomes red and flaky and sometimes, I get hives from the cold. When I come home to warm indoor my skin becomes dry from the heating systems. If you go through the same experience as I do each winter there is a solution for your predicament.

We don’t need to hide ourselves during the harsh winter season. We too can winterize our skin and embrace the warmth of the holiday season with open arms. First of all, just remember not all skin types are the same. Hence, the best option of course would be to go to an esthetician or dermatologist who can analyze your skin type, troubleshoot your current skincare regiment and advice on the best product for you.  However, since I already knew my skin type, I went to my local Body Shop, and talk to a store person there and ask them what to do. Since my skin is extra sensitive, they recommended their Aloe Vera moisturizer along with their Vitamin C regimen. I have to say, I did see a difference in my skin.

For the winter, the key to winterizing your skin is moisturizing. Make sure that you choose an oil-based moisturizer, not a water-based one. Just as an example, lotions labeled as “Night Creams” are oil-based.  I use natural organic essential oils on my skin, but I am very careful as to how much I use on my skin since my skin can breakout quite easily. According to WebMD, olive oil, avocado oil, mineral oil, primrose oil, or almond oil will not clog your pores.  You can apply small amount to your skin. I always wipe away extra with a soft wet cloth.  According to New York Dermatologist, Dr. Doris Day, a little bit of almond and coconut oils massaged gently around the eyes can help hydrate wrinkly skin under the eyes, but take care not to get it in your eyes, she said.

Every other night, I wash my face with a homemade scrub of with mixture of organic raw honey, organic extra virgin olive oil, and sugar. The honey is anti-inflammatory and a great moisturizer as well, and the scrub leaves my face soft and smooth.  It is also great for acne treatment, eye de-puffing and exfoliating scrubs. It’s excellent for treating eczema as well.  On the alternate days, I use mask made with organic raw honey, pure almond oil, avocado oil, and little yogurt. Yogurt is full of lactic acid that has wrinkle banishing properties.

In addition to moisturizing, I use the Body Shop Vitamin C Energizing Face Spritz that always gives me a boost of vitamin C and the Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Vitamin C Collagen Booster and Body Shop Tea Tree Blemish Free Nigh Lotion. Every morning, I apply the Vitamin C Spritz along with Aloe Soothing Moisturizing Lotion with SPF 15 under my Smashbox Blemish Control Primer and makeup. Those who want higher SPF, Essential-C Day Moisture SPF 30 is also a great option. Using sun screen is another key to winterizing your skin. Just because it’s winter it does not mean that your skin does not need protection from harmful UV ray. Follow these steps and you and your skin are ready to face the harsh winter. Nevertheless, not all skin types are the same, talk to you esthetician or dermatologist, or product store specialist. I know I am and my skin for sure are finally in the looking forward to this winter so far. Happy reading!
